I find building a collage to be very relaxing, putting together odd assorted pieces into one visual statement. I just love paper. Handling it, gluing it, ripping it, cutting it, painting over it, creating something new from what most people would consider scraps. Graphic, colorful, busy, textured, and organized are words I would describe as my collage work. I also make hand made books with a collage on the cover. Different sizes, colors and papers available. Collaged cards too!
